BEGINNINGS

The Hunterdon Preparatory School welcomed its first students over 40 years ago.  Founded in 1975 as The Hunterdon Learning Center, the school’s early mission was to provide a learning environment for young people who were struggling in traditional school settings. The school was developed on the philosophies of education pioneers John Dewey and William Glasser, who promoted a variety of experiential learning techniques to help students reach their full potential academically, socially, and emotionally.

CONTINUITY

A handful of today’s staff, including Executive Director, Toby Ray Loyd, have been involved with the school for over 30 years. Our legacy members of the staff have witnessed significant growth in the programs offered by the school and in our student population. Recognizing and addressing differences in learning styles has been key to the growth that Hunterdon Prep has experienced in recent years. 

A NEW ERA

In 2013, the Hunterdon Preparatory School moved from its original location in rural Lebanon Township, to a more central location near Clinton, NJ. Our new location allows more opportunity for our students to be involved in the local community. The new campus also provides more space for the school’s growth in number of students and in programs offered.  In our new location, and with our continually evolving integrated learning options, we are poised for an exciting future.
